LA Angels Season MVP’s From 2010-2019
2015 – Garrett Richards comes back strong from injury to have a good season. 15-12, 3.65 ERA 176 K’s.
Garrett Richards had a breakout season in 2014 until a freak knee injury ended his year prematurely. In 2015 Richards came back nicely and anchored a staff that was patchwork at best due to numerous injuries with no one else recording more than eight victories.
Richards went 15-12 with a 3.65 ERA while holding hitters to a .236 opponents’ batting average in 32 starts. Richards started slowly, but then picked it up recorded his career-high total in victories with 15. It also marked the only season in his career thus far that he started and finished the season healthy. In 2016 Richards would suffer a UCL injury and make only six starts. The followong the same scenario in 2017 making only six starts in an injury-plagued season.
Mike Trout and Albert Pujols both had productive years at the plate with 41 and 40 home runs respectively, but Richards was the one true rock on the mound.
